Description lar lines of a street scene. I think poor Will was disappointed that no use was made of them in the services! Today the rocking chairs of honour which seem to be reserved for K. and myself (I recognized the blue chintz cushions) are not on the platform, but placed close to a fearfully hot stove, and facing the table at which the elders sit in front of the jugs of water and bread plates. The choir sat on our right, and several of them greeted me cordially. One of them is my little friend pretty Lizzie S. After one of the Bishops has called the brethren and sisters to order, the choir master rises He is one of the two arbitrators in the Indian pony case, Brother McFarland. He says "The hy mn on the hundred and fifteen page", and away go the choir in a fine fugue.

Amen!" "Amen!" echo the congregation in the same breath, and it is no easy matter, for the Mormon preacher gathers so much speed into his last sentence that he comes to the stand ofAmen at a gallop. Then we have another gallant fugue, to which Brigham Young beats time with his spectacles, and at the end leans for- ward and says in an emphatic whisper "Chorus!" and the choir after an instant's faltering ring out a truimphant closing verse. Then comes a wearisomely long sermon from a slow spoken Bishop. I notice my dear little weary boys pale with the heat, striv- ing to keep awake and looking across from their high perch on the platform to see if Mamma approves their good behaviour. Mamma is naughty enough to attract their glances to a window 59
